Islanders and Penguins fans at the very least are familiar with the game that featured approximately 9000 minutes in penalties. It didn't happen for the hell of it.

There's a certain point where the game is over. Nobody likes to lose but especially get embarrassed. After a certain point the game is over where it's time to let up. At that point both teams just want to get out with no injuries and the game to end.

I think this is perfectly acceptable if you ask me. If you want to keep pouring it on and not let up, that's fine but I would have no problem taking a run at your players either if you're going to keep pouring it on. I had no problem taking a run at Duchene in Colorado last year when he continued to come at me with hits and shots when he was up 5-0 with 5 minutes left in the game (whether he realized it or not - he's too fast he's hard to catch lol).

My last game against Tampa, I was up 6-1 and spent that last 10 min of the third period or so just bringing it half way and dumping it into the zone.

This isn't the BCS, there's no reason a 9-1 game should even happen.

While a physical game there is some degree of class involved. I know in my case you'll be getting what you give.
Agreed.. not this season because I've been struggling, but I know last season and in versus, I had some games where I was blowing out teams.. and after a certain point I would just dump it in... or just maintain possession in the offensive zone, not really taking many shots, just to eat away time.

Or I would try out some new strategies.
